Anonymous, 26 Jul 2010I am in South-Africa. In general it is a very good phone except for 3g and TERRIBLE battery... moreSo, you expect a 1150mAh battery on a smartphone that constantly connects to the internet (even if you're not using it) to last more than 2 days???? Is this your first smartphone? You could buy and extended battery (2300mAh?) but for the small battery, this has excellent battery life. I use mine a lot, constantly on FB, Twitter, internet, emails and making a few calls and sending various SMS's a day. My phone gets unplugged around 9:30 am and at 11:00pm I have 2 bars left. I can easily go a day and a half like that but I prefer having it fully charged. The days when you could go days without a charge are gone, phones have too many functions these days and batteries barely hold out. The best ones I've heard of are the Nokia E71 and the Bold 9700, both have 1500mAh (I think) and can go days without a charge, and on 3G. If you leave wifi and bluetooth on it'll run the battery even faster. If you have them on and aren't using them, turn them off (menu-manage connections).
yeah terrible battery timing a headache.it size should little more wide.
